Apart from " The wee house " there is a lovely rugged beach to explore. It was windy when we visited and the sea was mesmerising to watch. Definitely worth going on past the obvious for a walk and some beautiful scenery.

An isolated ruin with lots of atmosphere. The beach and caves were great to explore. Rock pools with lots of shells. Parking was a bit limited

Great little place by the water to check out, with a great story. It's a must see! You can also explore the beach surrounding it.
